A land that was once residences of ancient Neanderthals, and now, Croatia is to be a new member of the European Union, have gold coins worth mentioning.
The IMF classified the country as a developing economy nowadays, and Croatia was part of Yugoslavia under the famous leader, Tito. It was one of the most flourishing countries in Eastern Europe due to its neutral foreign policies. Croatians didn’t need visas to travel from one country to another, as the part of the 1960s NAM along with Egypt’s Jamal Abed El-Nasser and India’s Mahatma Gandhi.
It was a part of the Hungarian and the Austrian rule from the 16th century till the World Wars I & II. And before that, it fought the Ottoman Empire for nearly 2 long centuries.
There might be no gold production now in Croatia, and it is one of the countries that have no gold reserves. The Croatian gold reserve might have been stolen during the chaos that followed the fall of the Soviet Union iron curtain. The truth is, no one knows for sure what happened back there.
Nevertheless, Croatia issues gold coins. There are available Croatian gold 20 Kuna coins minted in 2010 in 5,000 pieces. Also, there are 1994 Dukat coins, 1000 and 500 Kuna coins, and the old 1941 gold coins of 500 Kuna. The price ranges from $150 and $400.
For gold coins collectors, especially generalists, these gold coins are worth considering.
